The organizers of Ludo2020 are accepting proposals for research presentations.

University of Malta, Valletta, 24th – 25th April 2020.

We welcome proposals on all aspects of sound and music in games.

  • Representations of the body through sound and music in games
  • Performance of gender/sexuality and game sound
  • Physical interactivity with music and games
  • Dance and drama as lenses for conceptualizing game audio
  • Voice and game sound
  • Game music and accessibility

Presentations should last twenty minutes and will be followed by questions. Please submit your paper proposal (c.250 words) with a short provisional bibliography by email to ludomusicology@gmail.com.

Deadline: January 6th 2020

We aim to communicate the programme decisions by January 20th 2020. If you require more information, please email the organizers.

We encourage practitioners and composers to submit proposals for showcasing practice as research.
